Mint SIM Lets You Enjoy Prepaid Service at $35 for Three Whole Months

mint-sim-limited-time-promo
Nowadays, there are already so many different wireless promotions that you can find online. These promotions, however, come and go all the time; which is why they are no longer as newsworthy as they should be. This is something that a new prepaid MVNO wants to change.

Announced recently, Mint SIM is a new prepaid MVNO service by Ultra. The MVNO mainly offers international prepaid services with rates that are unlike the ones offered by traditional postpaid services from the big four carriers.

Mint SIM uses T-Mobile's network. Currently, they are offering a deal where customers can get 3 months of prepaid service for only $35 for all three months of service. This already includes unlimited talk, text and 2GB data at LTE speed. When you think about it, this translates to a per month rate of only $11.67. Once Mint SIM's deal ends, the normal $23 per month rate will already be implemented. With the same inclusions, this still makes it a pretty good arrangement.

Aside from this 3-month rate deal, Mint SIM has prepaid rates that enable its customers to purchase up to a year's worth of service. If a yearly prepaid service is preferred, customers may enjoy these plan options:

  • Small Plan $199/year - Includes unlimited talk, text, and 2GB data at LTE speed ($16.58/month)
  • Medium Plan $299/year - Includes unlimited talk, text, and 5GB data at LTE speed ($24.92/month)
  • Large Plan $399/year - Includes unlimited talk, text, and 10GB data at LTE speed ($33.25/month)

Obviously, these plan options are not intended for power-data subscribers. But if you don't exceed using 10GB of data per month, Mint SIM's plan offers look really competitive compared to what other brands are offering. Once the allotted high speed limit has been exceeded, the speed will get throttled. In addition to this, HD voice is not included in the plan offering. It also doesn't offer group or multi-line options as of the moment.

Part of the reason why the prices of Mint SIM are low is because they are have a set-up that is an e-Brand only. This means that everything is done online. If you want to buy a new phone from them, you can choose to do so. But since they encourage customers to bring their own device, their device line-up isn't something to boast about. Currently, they offer a 16GB iPhone SE, a Samsung Galaxy S4 (that still runs on Android 5 Lollipop), and two low-end handsets by BLU.

If you've decided to jump in on the bandwagon and get one of Mint SIM's plans, you can use the promo code "shopclever" when you make your purchase. This will entitle you to a 20% discount on its yearly plans. With this discount applied, the yearly plans become:

  • Small Plan: $159.20/year instead of $199/year ($13.25/month)
  • Medium Plan: $239.20/year instead of $299/year ($20/month)
  • Large Plan: $320/year instead of $399/year ($26.60/month)
No end date has been announced for the promo code. To know more about Mint SIM, visit their website today.

    1. I've used VoLTE on their service. They support WiFi calls but on specific Android phones they list on their website.

  3. $26.60 for 10 gigs a month is really really good.

  4. "unlike the ones offered by traditional postpaid services from the big four carriers"

    Do you think that is who the readers of this site are? Postpaid users of the big carriers?

    Yet another press release rewrite I am afraid.

  6. Are people really giving an mnvo a year of payment, when they could close shop at any time? If it was one of the big 4 - then yes.
    If it was Cricket, Boost, MetroPCS......even yes.

    Not giving another harbor mobile a year of payment..........

    1. Mint is part of Ultra and they have been around for a while. If Tmobile works for you the cheapest way is to get a preloaded sim from ebay each month and utilize a google voice number to forward your calls.

    2. You can get 20% of a year of service with coupon codes that come and go, making a year of the 2 GB/month plan $160. If service lasts 5-6 months, its about break even with another carrier at ~$30/month. So while there may be risk, I don't think it's terribly high.

    3. If they close up, will they prorate the amount that we used and refund the rest or is it all gone?

      Delete
    4. Unlikely. When an MVNO shuts down it's generally because they are broke and can't pay their bills. If you pay with a credit card you may be able to do a chargeback.

    5. I wouldn't pay a year in advance to any MVNO, even if it was owned by God himself, and Jesus as CEO.

    6. God is busy running T-Mobile.

      And then you are stuck paying another provider for those 6 mo. you already paid for. No thanks.

    8. Exactly. There's such a thing as going overboard with Prepaid

  7. Is there an equivalent for this on any other network like AT&T or Verizon? T-Mobile is not good in my area, so this is a No-go for me.

    1. If you mean multi-month plans, thjere's Red Pockets sell one year plans on AT&T, Verizon or Sprint on eBay: Red Pocket eBay Store

  8. The 10GB plan is a must have if your phone gets good T-mobile coverage.

    ReplyDelete
  9. OR good "part of T-Mobile" coverage. Remember, again, Mint coverage is a lot smaller than the native T-Mobile footprint... according to Mint's own map.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Mint customers get to use all of T-Mobile's native coverage which is what their coverage maps show. T-Mobile's own coverage maps show roaming as if it were native coverage. See T-Mobile's Latest Coverage Maps Are The Worst | Prepaid Phone News for more.

  10. Well we've seen a lot of changes in MVNO. As consumers we really can't complain. Prices have fallen big time. Free services such as freedompop and cheaper services.

  11. i tried the 3 month 2gb plan. it works well.
    however, i paid with credit card and got letter from " vertex wirelss" . it said that they got hacked and i should monitor my card and credit file for potential fraud. since my credit files are frozen , that is unlikely.
    however, be careful but not for the going out of business reason.

    1. If a mainstream carrier like Ultra was selling out its customers then there'd probably be a bigger uproar.

      That, and I doubt Ultra is the only phone-related merchant you've done business with.

  12. Is data hardcapped?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. No, there's unlimited 2G data after the cap is reached.

  13. You can keep the T-Mobile no roaming coverage.
    Might as well go with Lyca.

    1. I agree, until Mint offers a low cost pay as you go, it is Lyca FTW.
